Montenvers Wedding at Altitude
Hillary & Mat
This simple and sweet American couple from Boston wanted to share a moment with their loved ones that felt as extreme as their love! They planned their dream Montenvers wedding at an altitude of 1913m at the foot of the famous Mer de Glace glacier. The venue was the famous Montenvers Refuge, a cozy spacious hotel venue. The atmosphere of this hotel is so charming and warm it was perfect for this intimate wedding.
Although the weather did not show up shining for the occasion, everyone still marveled at the views from the train windows on the ride from the valley to the glacier. The views from this train ride are truly like no other. The Alpine train winds up the mountain and stops twice at jaw-dropping viewpoints. Some of the guests had never been to the Alps before, so this was a real treat for them.
They had quite an intimate affair with only 30 guests, that traveled from all over to share this special moment. All of the guests joined for the ceremony and the dinner. They all went back to the valley to celebrate in the bustling town of Chamonix.
While the couple spent the night at this amazing little refuge. Sharing the last moments of such a special day together. They woke up to the sounds of the mountain and enjoyed a delicious French breakfast overlooking the Mer de glace. They walked hand and hand around the terraces before the tourists came and really had the mountain all to themselves.
After a leisurely morning at altitude, they returned down to the Chamonix to join their friends and family in celebrating their love story. Time passed way too quickly before heading back to the USA. We know we will see these love birds again soon! Congrats Hillary & Patrick!
